Oddly named, but divinely created, the Gurkha Shaggy is a unique cigar from the mind of K. Hansotia. The first unique characteristic of the shaggy is the exposed foot, but when you smoke it, the only thing that you will be focused on is the balanced recipe of vintage tobaccos with 5-year old Dominican long-fillers and binder.
Surrounding the filler core is a lovely chocolaty-brown 8-year old Dominican wrapper. Upon toasting the rugged foot, the binder and filler provide an insightful experience as to the taste of a cigar sans its wrapper. As the burn reaches the wrapper, warm flavors engulf the palate filling the senses as smooth notes of tobacco, oak, spice, and a hint of vanilla round out this medium-bodied tasty cigar.
